ALBANY, N.Y. - As developers continue to make their push to bring a casino to the Capital Region, residents in some towns are pushing back, making sure their concerns are heard.
A public meeting will be held in Albany on Thursday night and residents will be encouraged to voice any questions or concerns they have over the proposal for a casino in the city.
Developer Capitol OTB wants to build a Vegas-style casino on Noonan Lane, near Exit 23 on the Thruway. Flaum Management Company is partnering with Capital OTB on the proposed project called Project E-23. Developers hope the project will bring millions of dollars and thousands of jobs to Albany.
The Common Council has yet to vote on the plan, saying it wants to hear more about the impact it will have in the area.
